A fun, little vineyard along the coast, The Dog and Oyster won't disappoint. A small shop is on the grounds staffed with knowledgable staff. Give it a try and stay local!

They have food on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11-4. Don't think you need reservations.

Absolutely. The Urbanna Oyster Festival is November 5 and 6. Weather is changeable but usually warm. Our vineyard is usually very busy.
